Ice-cold temperatures and dark, snowy winter days have us yearning for warmer weather—we can’t ditch our toques and parkas fast enough. In anticipation of the upcoming season, here are the five items we can’t wait to resurrect this spring.
The Trench Coat
The trench coat is a timeless stylish item, creating a look that continues to move seamlessly across decades. On a fresh spring morning or drizzly May day, this form-fitting jacket is the perfect layer for cover while providing a sophisticated edge.
We can’t wait for the freedom to slip in and out of flats—not to mention the endless variety these versatile shoes come in: pointed, ballet, sling back, and loafer, in alligator, suede, peep toe, and oxford. There’s a flat for any—and we mean any, look, so it’s easy to see why we’re jazzed up to wear them. We hear bows, from gingham to bold colours, will be all the rage this spring.
The Ankle Pants
Your cropped jeans and work trousers were likely pushed to the back of the closet this winter as bone chilling days made it impossible to put on anything that exposed even a fraction of skin. It’s hard to pair Timberlands with a shortened hem. Those beloved pants will soon re-emerge, fitting perfectly with any shoe, and you no longer have to worry about cold ankles in between.
The Wrap Dress
Don’t wait for summer to wear your wrap dress. From long-sleeve to short-sleeve, mid-thigh to knee, it’s the perfect spring look for any occasion, whether it’s on a day out or date night. Tie closures create a fitted silhouette for any style that can be dressed up however you like.
The Ascot & Spring Scarf
Ascots are more than an old-school fashion accessory. This retro statement can be modernized with current looks. We’re also ready to swap the heavy blanket scarf for its lighter, spring version, in patterns and colours fitting with the season. Mix and match either accessory, whether it’s to complete an office ensemble or while you’re out running errands.
